Stainville Episode 4

Author Comments

At long last, Stainville 4 arrives on Newgrounds. Despite the animation being finished since February, several setbacks hampered the final product coming to fruition. However, after a several months, we finally got our shit together.

This episode explores some new locations in Stainville High School, particularly the library and the school's ventilation system.

Music once again provided by the irreplaceable talents of Alexander Loredo-Stone a.k.a. Piggemz.


As a user who's been with not only your series, but has been following your music on Youtube and Soundcloud for a very long time now, I can say with a strong certainty that this series, as well as your other work, has potential. That being said, I can also say with certainty that your most recent Stainville uploads in particular have been rather lacking, at least, regarding the quality of the writing and humour. Over the span of these four episodes, I've seen it degrade from self-aware, semi-serious, genuinely funny and thought out stuff (akin to the older seasons of Beavis and Butthead mixed with every episode of Ed Edd and Eddy that took place within the school) to "lel so randumb xDDDDDD" crap. If that's honestly the direction you want your series to travel, that's your decision as a content producer. However, I would like to suggest that you don't settle for less, that you try to go the extra mile to make these episodes better. Krinkels didn't settle for less. The Swain didn't settle for less. And when the founder of this website, Tom Fulp, made this website and actively contributed to the games here, left his mark on this website and the internet at large, he didn't do it by settling for less- by giving up, and just shitting out some half-baked doodle. You have the potential to be up there with them. You and your work has the capability to be great- to get the respect and admiration of people from all walks of life, from all over the world, to leave your mark on a very prominent and vocal subgroup of people- and possibly, many others.
Isn't that what you want?
Your choice.
Thank your for your time and consideration in reading this review. Good luck.

Over the course of the past few episodes, I've been trying to replicate whatever it was that made Episode One so funny. I disagree that the first one was well-thought-out; every episode was written on the spot and were each a shot in the dark. In fact, more planning went into later episodes than the first. I sometimes feel like Stainville was diluted by the later episodes, not because they were poorly-done, but because a concept like it can only go so far. Taking a hiatus from it is something I've been considering lately.

Additionally, I would hardly say that I'm settling for less. An example of that would be dismissing this entire review and proceeding to produce more of the same. Stainville started as a side-project that me and a few buddies bonded over while recording and bouncing ideas off each other. It, in no way, reflects my potential as a story teller or an animator. I will always be looking to branch out.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
